The Original

The first and the best garlic shrimp truck. We visit this truck at least once whenever on the island. The price seems to be getting higher, but the flavor stays the same, yummy.

Great place for garlic shrimp in the Poipu area. For a little more they will peel the shrimp for you. That's an awesome service. Great staff and good food!

The Fish and Chips with fries and coleslaw is great! It's a small little place but they take pride in their food and service

What a find, we ate her half way through our three weeks seeing the Hawian islands and although our average meal cost was about $250 per night we read about his place on trip advisor and thought we'd have to give it a go. Wow the garlic and chilli shrimp was amazing a definite substitution for a Friday night curry... More

Funky little place with fantastic Shrimp & rice. We had the garlic scampi and the firerock garlic scampi - firerock was by far more flavorful. Not much seating and no beer - having a beer really would have made it.

We ate coconut fried shrimp that came with rice and coleslaw. We also ordered the savage shrimp that came with an awesome tomato broth and... More

Wanted some quick eats that didn't include red meats so this was perfect-o. Their special sauce makes the shrimp tacos memorable.
